To be considered for an invitation, please send a Letter of Inquiry (LOI) telling us about your organization and the project you’re seeking funding for. The LOI should be sent as an email to Lori Hairrell at firstname.lastname@example.org with a subject line of “Letter of Inquiry.”
The email should include the following information:
